Welcome. You're likely wondering: "How in the world could anybody be against wind power??"
Before you conclude that we are a bunch of whiners who don't want sleep-depriving 40-story towers in our back yards (that's generally true), please poke around this site. Lest you think we are a clique of conspiracy theorists (some of us do smell a pretty big rat but rats don't stick around forever the way abandoned wind turbines will) please read the sensible information found here. Click on "About Us" and see how we make the case that Maine has no use for the super-expensive, woefully unreliable, environmentally damaging fad known as wind power. Please find that wind power has nothing to do with getting us off oil, since we don't use oil (or coal) to generate electricity - and we have huge excess generation already. Please click around and find that we care about Maine's quality of place, and we don't want to sell off and blow up our mountaintops for a generating method which will be obsolete and useless (but forever damaging) in a decade. Please see that we are not a rabble of unsophisticated anarchists, but people who have done plenty of homework, homework that leads one to the conclusion that 2700 mw of wind production could bankrupt Maine financially and environmentally. Please see that we are simply trying to halt the myth that wind power has redeeming value for anyone except the developers who scoop up the incentives and subsidies, despite its ability to appear warm and fuzzy. The price we pay at the meter and in lost environment is just too high for what we get in return: an undependable, expensive, duplicative product that does not do what it says it will. Wind power is dangerous medicine being prescribed to a healthy patient. Welcome, and join. Help us turn Maine off this suicidal path.
